The pandemic is setting records for hospitalizations,
forcing states to rethink their reopening plans

U.S. Sets One-Day Record For New Coronavirus Cases

Across the United States, 38,115 new infections were reported by state health departments on Wednesday - surpassing the previous single-day record of 34,203 set on April 25.

Texas, Florida and California led the way, with all three states reporting more than 5,000 new cases apiece.

Three states - California, Florida and Oklahoma - reported record highs in new single-day coronavirus cases, while hospitalizations hit a new peak in Arizona, where intensive care units have quickly filled.

Even as case numbers climb, reports circulated that the federal government is poised to stop providing federal aid to testing sites in some hard-hit states, including Texas, prompting a top federal official to respond that testing was on the rise. washingtonpost.com nytimes.com

Texas pauses reopening plan as coronavirus cases and hospitalizations rise
Businesses that were permitted to open under the previous phases can continue to operate at the designated occupancy outlined by the Texas Department of State Health Services, according to statement from Abbott's office. "The last thing we want to do as a state is go backwards and close down businesses. This temporary pause will help our state corral the spread until we can safely enter the next phase of opening our state for business," Gov. Greg Abbott said in the release. cnbc.com

'No Evidence' Black Lives Matter Protests Caused COVID-19 Spike: Study
A study using data from Black Lives Matters protests across 315 of America's largest cities found "no evidence" in the following two and a half weeks that they caused a spike in the number of new COVID-19 cases. The paper, titled "Black Lives Matter Protests, Social Distancing, and COVID-19," also found "strong evidence" that the protests actually increased stay-at-home overall, likely because non-protesters chose to leave their homes less amid the demonstrations. newsweek.com

The Business Impact

Most 'Exposed' Retailers
These retailers have the most stores in states where COVID cases are spiking
The investment firm Instinet analyzed a dozen states that as of last Friday had reported record highs in new Covid-19 cases: Florida, Texas, Utah, South Carolina, Nevada, Georgia, Missouri, Montana, Arizona, California, Tennessee and Oklahoma. In many of these states, cases have only grown since that time.

The chart below takes select retailers and looks at the percentage of their total U.S. stores that are based in those 12 states. The information for these calculations was drawn from the companies' annual reports.

Instinet found the retailers with the greatest exposure are the off-price chain Ross Stores, Costco and O'Reilly Auto Parts. Others on the list include AutoZone, Ulta Beauty, TJ Maxx owner TJX and Burlington. cnbc.com

Private Security Officers Target of Violence During Reopening of Businesses
Private security officers have once again become the target of violence since the reopening of businesses, malls, and nightclubs during the past few weeks.

To understand the dynamics of how private security officers are often the target of assaults, shootings, and death, you need not look any further than the past 7 days: Three security officers have been murdered, six others have been shot and two other security officers have been stabbed in unrelated incidents. And there have been numerous others physically assaulted while enforcing the rules and just doing their job.

Each year more than 27,000 assaults of security officers are reported and more than 100 security officer deaths occur according to national statistics catalogued by Private Officer International. privateofficer.com

How Much Covid-19 Cost Those Businesses That Stayed Open
A food distributor has paid $20 million for testing and plexiglass. T-Mobile US Inc. has spent $50 million on extra cleaning and safety gear. Walmart Inc. and three other big retail chains have put more than $3 billion into higher salaries, benefits and other Covid-19 measures.

Staying open during the pandemic wasn't cheap. Big companies say they spent anywhere from hundreds of thousands to almost a billion dollars in Covid-19-related costs. Some say they expect the costs to keep rising in coming quarters, even as they face uncertain demand from consumers.

The figures include increased pay for front-line workers, expanded cleaning and sanitization protocols, and the purchasing of coronavirus testing or personal protective equipment, according to a Wall Street Journal review of recent quarterly reports and earnings-call transcripts. These are extra expenses and don't reflect extra revenue or lost business. Some essential retailers that were open as well as makers of safety gear had a surge in revenue during the lockdown.

Here is a sampling of what companies have revealed. Many of these examples are companies with quarters that ended later than March 31 and included more of the lockdown. A clearer picture will come when more firms report their results for the current quarter, beginning next month.

Target - $1 billion
Walmart - $900 million
Kroger - $830 million
Home Depot - $640 million
T-Mobile - $117 million

Gov. Hutchinson said this is an "absolutely essential" step as we look at cases that increase in different parts of the state.

In a press conference on June 24, Governor Asa Hutchinson announced he has directed the Arkansas Department of Health to double the amount of contact tracers in the state. The number of contact tracers will be doubled from 350 to 700. The governor said this will be an additional cost of $22 million. thv11.com

Hundreds of thousands of jobs expected to be open in the next few years
Some of them require only a high school diploma or the equivalent. The jobs are in such demand that Johns Hopkins University is offering training for free. Johns Hopkins University, the leader in tracking the spread of the virus, is offering a free course in Contact Tracing through the end of the year and through the popular Coursera online resources. It's an online course that takes approximately 5 hours to complete.

To participate in the training, you simply sign up and then watch about 5 hours of online video classes, led by an instructor from Johns Hopkins. When you've completed the course, you'll receive a grade and a certificate of completion you can share on LinkedIn for when you apply for jobs.

Since the virus is predicted to last for years, those positions will be needed for a long time. Some estimates predict over 300,000 jobs will be available. coursera.org

Directive from the Attorney General
U.S. marshals told to prepare to help protect monuments nationwide as Trump targets people who vandalize structures during protests

U.S. marshals have been told they should prepare to help protect national monuments across the country, according to an email directive viewed by The Washington Post, as President Trump has vowed stern punishment for those who vandalize or destroy such structures as part of police violence protests.

In an email, Marshals Service Assistant Director Andrew C. Smith wrote that the agency "has been asked to immediately prepare to provide federal law enforcement support to protect national monuments (throughout the country)." The subject line of the message indicates it is an "Attorney General Assignment," suggesting it came from Attorney General William P. Barr. washingtonpost.com

Wisconsin Gov. Evers activates state National Guard in response
to civil unrest in Madison
Gov. Tony Evers on Wednesday afternoon authorized the Wisconsin National Guard to support police in response to civil unrest in Madison.

"The protests in Madison last night resulted in serious injury to bystanders as well as significant damage to state property," Evers said in the release. "The Wisconsin National Guard will serve in a limited authorization meant to make sure people can exercise their First Amendment rights while ensuring the safety of members of the public and state buildings and infrastructure."

Madison police reported damage to state buildings and a Molotov cocktail thrown into the City-County Building overnight Tuesday. Two statues were removed from outside of the Wisconsin State Capitol. A state senator also alleged he was assaulted by protesters while taking a video and had to lock himself in his Capitol office for safety, and a motorist said he was beaten and his vehicle damaged by demonstrators. channel3000.com

Police reform, legislative developments

House set to take up police reform bill; Colorado may look into Elijah McClain case; Tucson police chief resigns

The House of Representatives is preparing to move forward with its police reform bill Thursday, a day after Senate Democrats blocked a package proposed by Senate Republicans because they argued that it wasn't enough to bring change needed in the aftermath of George Floyd's death.

Colorado Gov. Jared Polis said his legal council will look into how the state can get involved in probing the death of Elijah McClain, a 23-year-old Black man who died last August in police custody after officers restrained him by his neck.

Tucson's police chief abruptly resigned Wednesday after video footage showed an April incident that led to the death of a man in police custody and many questions about how officers handled the incident. usatoday.com

FBI: Online crimes increasing in Florida, California, Texas, Ohio, and New York
Analysis of FBI data found that nearly $2 billion was stolen from US victims in 2019 just from business email compromise. After examining data collected by the FBI, researchers with the university's Internet Crime Research Report found that Washington, Ohio, California, and Florida have become hubs for internet crime since 2015. A team of analysts led by Dr. Michael Crain, director of FAU's Center for Forensic Accounting, pored through the FBI data between 2015 to 2019 to figure out which states had the highest number of victims and highest amount of monetary losses due to internet crime. techrepublic.com

Pre-Bankruptcy Retention Bonuses Under Fire
J.C. Penney CEO & Others' Pre-Bankruptcy Retention Bonuses Come Under Fire

Companies that are struggling to pay creditors and suppliers are managing to find millions of dollars to pay bonuses to their bosses. The payments, which are made just before a bankruptcy filing, appear to be legal and have been made by several companies.

J.C. Penney, which is closing 154 stores, paid its chief executive, Jill Soltau, $4.5 million. The chief executive of Whiting Petroleum, which sought bankruptcy protection in April, received $6.4 million, and Chesapeake Energy is paying bonuses ahead of an expected bankruptcy filing. Executives at Hertz also got payments before the rental-car giant sought bankruptcy protection.

Companies have said the payments are meant to help them retain qualified executives through the recession and bankruptcy.

But critics counter that the money would be better spent on rank-and-file employees. "It makes me angry because they are not taking care of the people who are actually making the money," said Liz Marin, who worked at Toys "R" Us when it filed for bankruptcy and is now an organizer in training at United for Respect, a nonprofit organization that seeks to help retail workers.
Toys "R" Us paid bonuses to executives before its bankruptcy.

And of course the bonuses are far higher than what regular employees earn. Ms. Soltau's was many times the $11,482 the retailer's median employee, a part-time worker, earned during J.C. Penney's 2019 fiscal year, according to a securities filing. nytimes.com

Illinois Legislature OKs stiffer penalties for assaults on retail workers
Senate Bill 471 amends the "aggravated battery" section of law by adding the crime of assaulting or battering a retail worker who is fulfilling duties such as relaying health care or safety regulations from an employer or public health agencies. Rep. Marcus Evans Jr., D-Chicago, said the bill "sends a clear message" to workers in Illinois and across the country that they "must be respected and protected." He said retail workers assaulted for telling people to wear masks showed that the bill is needed. SB 471, which passed with a 95-10 vote in the House and 47-3 in the Senate, only needs a signature from Gov. JB Pritzker to become law, and it would take effect immediately when signed. journalstandard.com

US work visas frozen until year-end - despite business opposition

The ban has been met with criticism from many business leaders, who say it will drastically impede their ability to recruit global talent. President Trump says the move will help create jobs for Americans who've been affected by the pandemic. linkedin.com

'BlueLeaks' Police Data Leak: A Sign of the Times?

The recent leak of 269 GB of sensitive data from more than 200 police departments and the FBI could be a sign that law enforcement agencies are becoming a prime target for hackers, given recent civil unrest.

The data was leaked last week by a group known as Distributed Denial of Secrets, or DDoSecrets, which, like Wikileaks, publishes formerly secret data, according to a security blogger Brian Krebs.

"It's no surprise that law enforcement was the target of this data breach," says Saryu Nayyar, CEO of Gurucul, a risk analytics firm. "With the current civil and political climate, a wide range of threat actors, from activists to nation-states, would be interested in revealing this sort of confidential information. Going forward, especially with the current election cycle, we can expect to see more events like this."

Very Little Loyalty After Attacks
Research Confirms Links Between Cyber Attacks,
Consumer Purchasing and Brand Loyalty

A survey of nearly 2,000 consumers across North America, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany, found that 70% believe businesses aren't doing enough to adequately secure their personal information and assume it has been compromised without them knowing it. And, as consumers become more educated and cyberattacks become well-known, perceived trust becomes more influential in their purchasing decisions, with the study also finding that:
Nearly nine of ten consumers consider the trustworthiness of a business prior to purchasing a product or service; and,

59% of consumers would likely avoid doing business with an organization that had experienced a cyberattack in the past year.

The findings suggest businesses must manage uncharted challenges with the rise of cybercriminals now making breaches public, regardless of ransoms paid.

Consumer Tolerance Threshold

The study found that one in four consumers will abandon a product or service in favor of a competitor after a single ransomware-related service disruption, failed transaction, or instance of inaccessible information. It also found that tolerance for the events quickly deteriorates, with:

More than 66% of respondents citing they would turn to a competitor if an organization couldn't restore systems and applications within three days following a cyberattack; and,

More than a third of those would be willing to switch after a mere 24 hours of waiting to access their information or make a transaction. securitymagazine.com

High stakes:
How cannabis retailers can operate safely during and in the aftermath of COVID-19
Cannabis companies,
deemed essential businesses in many states, continue operating despite the COVID-19 pandemic. While many cannabis companies are struggling to stay open without eligibility for the Small Business Administration loans authorized by Congress, remaining operational has other considerations regarding how to revamp their retail stores without spreading communicable illnesses.

Considerations for all cannabis retailers
Cannabis retailers face many of the same questions as other retailers.[1] One of the biggest considerations is customer access. How will you limit customer count in the store to ensure proper
social distancing? How do you decide how many customers are allowed in at a time? Who will monitor and enforce the rules? What happens if a customer does not wear a cloth face covering despite a requirement to do so? Will you require the customer to vacate the store immediately? What if the customer refuses to leave? How will you enforce social distancing of customers inside the store? Cannabis companies will need to have procedures and best practices for staff to address each of these scenarios.

Special considerations for cannabis retailers with smoke rooms or lounges
Cannabis retailers that permit customers to smoke in a smoke room or lounge area face additional hurdles. As a preliminary matter, cannabis retailers should consider whether, as shelter-in-place orders slowly lift, opening their smoke rooms makes sense, as, by their nature, such smoke rooms counteract some preventive measures, like wearing cloth face coverings, and allow exhalation vapors to mingle where they might be re-inhaled. Just because your smoke room is permitted to open doesn't mean it is practical or makes financial sense, or shouldn't be remodeled to allow better air circulation or be moved outside. Prior to opening your smoke room, you also need to consider whether you can do so safely.
Businesses have an obligation to protect both their employees and customers. cannabisbusinessexecutive.com

New Jersey Is On The Verge Of Becoming the 12th State To
Legalize Recreational Cannabis

After legislative failures, voters may give the green light to legalization

There were a couple of attempts to pass recreational cannabis in New Jersey in previous years, but these did not go through. Back in December 2019, the New Jersey legislature approved a referendum on the ballot which resembles a resolution, a constitutional amendment to have voters choose marijuana legalization details.

The resolution suggests that the
New Jersey's cannabis market should be regulated by the Cannabis Regulatory Commission, which already controls the state's medical marijuana program since July 2019. By having the people decide if cannabis should be legalized for recreational purposes for people ages 21 and older via the ballot, huge shifts in public policy are possible, according to Assembly Speaker Craig Couglin.

Based on the current survey by the end of 2020,
New Jersey will become the 12th state to legalize recreational cannabis. This does not mean that New Jersey won't face a lot of challenges, but it can be taken as a great example for many other states to continue to push towards recreational cannabis even if the legislative route turns out to be unsuccessful. sapphirerisk.com

Where Consumers Shifted During COVID-19, Ecommerce Fraud Followed

Attackers are following the money too

COVID-19 has quickly
reshaped web traffic and application usage patterns. For example, traffic to food delivery has skyrocketed. The rapid shift in consumer behavior has morphed attack patterns, expanded the threat environment and added attack pressures against many site operators unaccustomed to so much attention from ecommerce fraud operators. They are largely mounting account takeover (ATO) attacks.

Logically, attackers are following the money. Greater traffic and transactions in new industries means more opportunities for fraud such as:

 Theft of credit card and financial information

 Placing unauthorized orders for goods or services using hijacked accounts

 Draining new pools of loyalty points to resell on the dark web

Ecommerce fraud attackers are taking advantage of rapid shifts.
Security teams operating under shelter in place are less efficient. Those teams are shouldering new responsibilities for securing remote workers. Online merchants are pushing application changes more quickly; this results in more bugs and vulnerabilities going live. multichannelmerchant.com

Clovis, CA: FBI arrests Walmart manager on suspicion of Federal bank fraud
An assistant manager of a Clovis Walmart is behind bars, arrested Wednesday, after facing a five-count indictment earlier this year from a Federal grand jury for bank fraud. Alena Nicole George was indicted on March 12 on charges of bank fraud and the use of unauthorized credit cards. Court documents revealed that George used the personal information of people with similar names to her and got credit cards in their names. She made over $100,000 in purchases and cash advances on one of the cards. George could face a maximum penalty of 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine for bank fraud if she is convicted. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of California said that George also faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for the unauthorized use of credit cards. sjvsun.com

Update: Sydney, AU: Woman who made thousands selling stolen baby formula to Chinese buyers learns fate

Shootings & Deaths

Antioch, CA: Accused shoplifter dies during fight at Lucky's grocery store
An alleged shoplifter was killed during a fight at an Antioch grocery store late Wednesday. According to police, officers responded to the Lucky's grocery store on Contra Loma Blvd. just before 10 p.m. on a report of a man who was not breathing after getting into a fight with a store employee. An investigation revealed the 56-year-old Lucky's employee caught the 34-year-old suspect trying to steal meat from behind the butcher shop area of the store. When the worker confronted the suspect, the suspect attacked him, he claimed. That's when a fight ensued and the suspect "stopped breathing for an unknown reason," according to police. The man died at the scene. The Lucky's worker was taken to a local hospital for treatment of injuries and is currently in stable condition. Police say right now it's not clear if the suspect died due to injuries in the fight or if he had a medical emergency that led to his death. Officials said they hope to learn more once an autopsy is conducted. abc7news.com

A woman accused of assault during a fight in the parking lot of the Kenwood Towne Center Tuesday says she wants to set the record straight over what happened. Alicia Josshua, 48, was arrested around midnight Tuesday. She was released on bond Wednesday morning. Her son, Joshua Ward, 23, is still wanted by authorities.
